Maureen Agena is one of the 12 Young Social Activists to watch out for in 2012

Compiling a list of 12 Young social activists to watch out for in 2012 was an herculean task. As much as possible, we wanted a list that would demonstrate reach, focus on young people who have had a track record of contributing to development in their societies and who are poised to make much more contributions in the coming year. We dug deep into existing networks on the continent, read through the profile of several young men and women and sough recommendation from adult allies who have worked with amazing young people on the continent. From an initial list of 31, we pruned down and settled on the final 12, their records and achievements speak for them.
